LORAIN, OH – A group of smash and grab thieves have struck again – this time at Nielsen’s, a well-known jewelry store on Broadway in Lorain.

This is the second major jewelry robbery in two weeks. And investigators believe the same gang that robbed the stores in Lorain has also been smashing into carry-out stores in Cleveland and grabbing ATM’s.

There are five suspects – four who use hammers and bricks to smash display cases and one who serves as a lookout.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers, the Lorain Police or the Cleveland Police.

Fox 8’s Jack Shea has the details in the video, above.
